Why Become a Verified Nerd?

by | Jul 16, 2020 | Career

When it comes to job searching, it is no surprise that standing out among the crowd has become increasingly difficult. Employers and job seekers often feel lost in a sea of applications, resumes, and names when utilizing various hiring platforms. Candidates and employers focused on AWS are no exception to this.

Our solution 

At NerdRabbit, we believe that a candidate’s AWS skill set should speak for itself. That’s why we created Nerdly, an online marketplace that matches companies in need of temporary help, guidance, training, or consulting with qualified professionals (who we call “Nerds”) that can fulfill these requests.

Nerds undergo a vetting process before activating their profiles to ensure that Nerdly is a community exclusively focused on candidates who have demonstrated a background working in AWS on projects like Application Development, DevOps, Security, Cloud Infrastructure, Migrations, and AI/ML.

So, why become a nerd? And what is a verified nerd?

As a Nerd, you will be able to provide references from previous projects on your profile. You become a Verified Nerd on our platform after three completed references, which helps your profile stand out even further to employers and gets you hired on projects quicker.
